The brake hose maybe bad replace it. They can claps on then self inside the hose. One work to check is have someone push the brake paddle down and release it if the rotor is hard to turn, open the bleeder vale if fluid comes out and the rotor turns freely that you problem.

Brakes fail traveling at15/20m makes a grinding sound, but brakes ok at speed.

A grinding sound usually suggests metal to metal contact but, as you say, you have changed the pads and disks.

What springs to mind is that that the brake backing plate - the metal disk on the inboard side - are being touched by the spinning disk, or the noise is being caused by a driveshaft or bearing.

However, there are other possibilities. Are there any shims in your braking system? Shims hold the pads in place and stop squeal/rattle.

It also could be that the pads are not being fully released from the disk when the brake pedal is pressed. Depending on your calliper set up it may be something as simple as a slide that is sticking and needs cleaning.

Brake pads are released from the disk by what is nothing more than the spinning of the disk 'knocking' things back. Assisted by rubber sleeves on 'slide pins'. Something may be sticking and need cleaning and a smear of copper grease added.

It would be too easy to say that you have a vacuum leak (or internal seal) problem in the brake servo. A servo problem usually results in a 'hard' brake pedal at all speeds. You don't have this problem.

It may well be that your brakes feel 'spongy' at low speeds because the pads are not being shoved back from the disk because of sticking slides (depending on your system).

It also may be that the pistons in your calliper are sticking.

You obviously can work on cars and use tools - consider overhauling your brake callipers (look on Ebay for overhaul kits) but bear in mind that doing this also means you have to bleed the brakes.

Hi, after bleeding my daewoo cielo brakes 1998 model still the pad is no longer going down

Do you mean pads or pedal?

If pads are stuck, either in disk, or off disk, then you ok need to remove caliper and ensure the pads and pin are free and not stuck or catching, this preventing movement.

If pedal isn't moving perhaps another rebleed would be worth trying. If they are stuck have you tried moving the car at all? My motorbike gets a rock hard lever till it rolls, as the pads aren't returning as they should, but the tiny variation in disk run out pushed them back. A good service of the calipers should allow easy return.

Obviously if this problem existed before the brakes were bled, then it's unrelated to the bless and likely to be the calipers or pads sticking, or something more involved with the master cyclinder or brake servo/assist systems etc, ie fluid isn't returning to the master cyclinder, this locking on the brakes.

What could be causing a clanking noise when breaking?

More then likely its time to change the brake pads and rotors .How dose the pedal feel and do you feel a pull to one side or the other. It could also be a loose wheel bearing or ever a peice of debrire lodged in one of the calipars. But most likely in the front brakes they do 70 % of the stopping

Did complete brake job on 1997 Ford Escort wagon no abs rear shoes, drums, lines, wheel cylinders,even changed the block at the rear were the lines go in & out of. Front lines hoses pads, caliplers...

is brake pedal hard to push down without engine running ,if so proceed to step two and thats to start engine and then push on brake and if pedal softer to push then the servo is working ,now if excessive pedal travel with engine running then remove the rear drums ,make sure the outside lip is cleaned out and then adjust the brake shoes manually till they rub when you turn the drum ,this will cure it but remember that it has to bed in of course new pads brake disks ,new shoes and drums it has to bed in so give it a chance .

Front end pulling to left

Your RIGHT side brake disk caliper is probably siezed so all braking power is going to the left causing the pull.
Wheel off, disk pads out, pump out the pistons in the caliper JUST A LITTLE. Clean with a copper brush and brake fluid until polished (Careful not to catch the rubber dust seals). Push pistons back in. Re-fit pads and wheel.

Other thoughts on this. Check for a lip on the disk caused by wear as well.

That's the super cheap, pay nothing for parts option. You should consider:
Changing both sets of brake pads
If the disks are worn, changing the disks too (you may be able to grind a lip off if you have the nerve).
If the caliper still sticks, new pistons or piston and caliper

On a 1994 Chevy s10 pick up, how do you change the front brakes?

jack up frt end. remove wheels. take note of how the brakes go together. do 1 side at a time so you can use the other side as a referance. remove caliper bolts. use a c-clamp to push in caliper pistons. remove old pads. than remove caliper bracket and rotors.dont be afraid its not a big deal. make sure to check brake fluid level and pump the pedal when the job is completed.

Disk brakes are automatically self adjusting. If you have too much travel in the pedal, bleed the brakes. Let us know if you need the procedure.
